+ - NASA Kepler spots rocky, “iron dumbbell&rdqu->

Submitted by coondoggie
coondoggie (973519) writes "NASA today said its star-gazing satellite Kepler has identified its first rocky planet orbiting a sun similar to our own — 560 light years from our solar system. While not in an area of space considered habitable, the rocky planet known as Kepler-10b and is never-the-less significant because it showcases the ability of Kepler to find and track such small exoplanetary movements."
